San Francisco welcomes nearly 17 million travelers every year, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States. The City by the Bay has some beautiful neighborhoods, but which one is right for your vacation?
1. Fisherman’s Wharf is Fishy Fun
Most visitors to San Francisco have Fisherman’s Wharf on their itinerary, but you needn’t make a special effort to visit if you base yourself in this buzzing neighbourhood.
Choose a room with kitchen facilities, like the penthouse suite in The Wharf Inn, and buy a fresh catch to cook in your room, or let the pros at the local seafood restaurants work their magic. Charter boats take tourists from the wharf to local attractions including Alcatraz, Angel Island, and other points of interest around San Francisco Bay. Meet local marine life at Aquarium of the Bay or look for sea lions and gulls near the pier.
